Ain’t Vancouver pretty? It’s also the third most livable city in the world, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit

 

Just because Vancouverites are used to living in one of the best cities in the world doesn’t mean they don’t like getting frequent reminders of the city’s desirability.

This time the pat on the back comes from the Economist Intelligence Unit, which awarded Vancouver third prize on its 2013 liveability ranking after Melbourne and Vienna.

It’s Vancouver’s third year in a row with the bronze after it slipped from its decade-long reign at the top in 2011.

The city got top marks for culture and the environment, what with its “greenest city” goals, but slipped when it comes to infrastructure.

The survey did note, however, that the Evergreen Line and apparent plans to build more transit will have long-term benefits. (Did ya hear that, TransLink?)

While the ranking isn’t based on hockey teams, Canucks fans...

Because housing affordability directly impacts the quality of life of British Columbians, BCREA (B.C. Real Estate Association) consistently and regularly recommends that the provincial government minimize the negative impact of the Property Transfer Tax (PTT). That’s why BCREA will put the following recommendations forward during the annual provincial budget consultation process, conducted by the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services.

BCREA recommends the provincial government:

 

  • index the 1% PTT threshold of $525,000 using Statistics Canada's New Housing Price Index, and make adjustments annually, and
  • increase the 1% PTT threshold from $200,000 to $525,000, with 2% applying to the remainder of the fair market value.

The PTT has always been applied in the following way: 1% on the first $200,000 of the fair market value of a property, and 2% on the remainder.
